Hi Everyone! I’m Alyssia Sheikh, and welcome to Mind Over Munch! Your all-encompassing resource to food, health, fun, and a community built around encouragement, passion and positivity.


Here on the Mind Over Munch website, you’ll find delicious recipes that are guilt-free and figure-friendly alternatives to your favorite foods (and more!) without sacrificing any flavor. I was a group fitness instructor and personal trainer for years, and while I love exercise–I’ll be the first to say that weight loss, weight maintenance, and muscle gain are mostly dependent on diet (although a good balance of diet, exercise, and rest are all crucial to incorporate into your regular regimen!).


Through this resource, you’ll find recipes that are appropriate for you regardless of your fitness and health goals or lifestyle choices. These recipes are NOT just for people dieting–these are for people who want to maintain a healthy lifestyle and still be able to enjoy the foods they love!


My recipes are lighter than their origins, meaning they are lower in unhealthy fats and calories, and higher in protein and overall nutrition. Take a look around the site and find some recipes you’d like to try! They’re all easy, and I’m a busy girl so most are quick to make! If you have any questions, fill out the form below, and be sure to subscribe to be updated on all the newest happenings of Mind Over Munch!
